The pastor of a Congregational Church in Springfield, Mass., here endeavors to give answers to people who are asking themselves: How can I rise above the things that are confusing and tormenting me and become the person I would like to be? Some sample chapter headings indicate the ground covered: ""Slow Down and Live Longer""; ""On Being Healthy Minded""; ""Stripping Your Mind of Its Illusions""; ""Don't Mind Your Troubles""; ""Beyond Peace of Mind."" There is little that is deep and soul searching in this book. For the most part, superficial poultices are supplied to the superficial wounds of the soul. But there is practical wisdom here and an abundance of usable illustrative material. So while it is by no means a significant book, not a few preachers and other Protestant church leaders will no doubt be interested in it.
